Healthy Deviled Eggs Recipe

I LOVE deviled eggs.

They always seem like such a treat to me even though they are pretty easy to make and can easily be made to fit in your healthy diet.

They can be an appetizer for a party if you don’t want to cheat on your diet or just a fun little side dish for your lunch or dinner. (Shoot you can even save leftovers and eat them for a breakfast!!)

I also find it can help people starting out on a new diet to occasionally be able to indulge in healthy variations of the “treat” or “party foods” they used to love!

Buffalo Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs

Sorry not the best photo…And if Ryan and I weren’t just chowing down alone we probably would have made them look prettier!

Ingredients:
7 eggs
1/2-1 tbsp Frank’s Hot Sauce (or other hot sauce)
1 oz blue cheese
1/2 tbsp cream
1 tsp dill

Place eggs in cold water in a pot (to make them easier to peel, put vinegar and salt in the water). Heat the pot on high heat until the water boils. Leave the eggs boiling for about 8 minutes.

Remove from heat and place eggs in cold water.

Once cool, peel the eggs and cut in half.

Scoop out yolks and add to a food processor with cream, cheese, dill, and hot sauce. You can add each ingredient to taste. Blend until smooth.

Place mixture back in eggs and serve!

You can also make jalapeno bacon deviled eggs this way as well! That is one of our other favorites!

What are some other “traditional” party foods or “treat” foods that you love that you’ve made healthy variations of?
